The NHL revealed this year’s group of All-Stars of Thursday night, and one Islander made it: defenseman Adam Pelech.

For Pelech, the All-Star choice is the very first of the 27-year-old’s profession.

In 24 video games this season, Pelech has 5 points from his protective position. In his 327 video games in general as an Islander, Pelech has actually tape-recorded 80 points and leads the group with +46 ranking.

Pelech will be the Islanders’ only agent at this year’s All-Star Weekend, which will happen in Las Vegas in early February, with the Abilities Obstacle set for Feb. 4 and the All-Star Video game the next night.
